where republicans and democrats seem to agree that something needs to be done on tax issues or fiscal issues, where there has been an impasse for many years now. host: in terms of the principle, how detailed is the outline? are we talking about a bill taking shape or just a sketch at this point? caller: it is more of a sketch, the first step in trying to get an actual bill going. basically these are legislative goals that include four areas, one is a package, one is overhauling the existing system, another is establishing a way to ensure that there is less illegal hiring of workers, and another is to create a guest worker program. but those goals, we do not know how that will be achieved or worked out over the next few months. things are supposed to get going here as soon as next month. senator schumer and the other senators believe that they could have something by late spring, early summer. host: looking at "the san antonio news," we have this headline -- "upset republicans." what are you hearing about republicans getting things through? caller: house republicans do not seem to be o
